THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE
Last Friday, the CW cancelled it's newest drama "The Beautiful Life" after only two episodes. The show, starring Mischa Barton, Sara Paxton, and Elle Macpherson, recevieved low ratings. Although the show was produced by Ashton Kutcher, it only premiered with approximately 1.5 million viewers and lost about 60 percent of the audience the following week, to "America's Next Top Model." For now, The CW plans on filling the vacant timeslot with re-runs of the new "Melrose Place."
The Beautiful Life, an up and coming CW show, is already making fashion waves. The show stars Mischa Barton, Sara Paxton and newcomer Ashley Madekwe who is best known for her role as the client stealing call girl Bambi on Showtime’s Secret Diary of a Call Girl. The Beauiful Life chronicles the rise and fall of a group of models living and working in New York City. This show is said to be the preset for fashion lovers across America; although the pilot has yet to be be seen, the buzz surrounding the show is tremendous, not only because of it's wild stars, but also because of the fashion. Costume designer Tom Broecker made sure that he used the most fashion forward designers when dressing the actors. Pieces from the Phillip Lim, Rebecca Taylor, Roberto Cavalli, Balmain and Zac Posen (just to name a few) collections are being used to style the character as true New York fashion models. Is Tom Broecker the new Patrica Field? Will he make The Beauiful Life a cult classic in the fashion industry? We will have to just wait and see, The Beautiful Life premieres Wednesday, September 16th. Will you be watching? - I will.
